After a thrilling Sunday at the U.S. Open, Gary Woodland took home the first major victory of his career. Woodland fought off a strong performance from Brooks Koepka, who was eyeing his third consecutive U.S. Open title and his second major championship in a row after winning last month's PGA Championship, to take home the title.

As we look ahead to golf's next and final major of the season, the British Open or Open Championship, depending on who you ask, we see many of the same familiar names at the top of the betting leaderboard.

Brooks Koepka once again comes in as the betting favorite with +700 odds to win. He's followed by Rory McIlroy (+850), Tiger Woods (+950), Dustin Johnson (+1200), Jordan Spieth (+1200) and Justin Rose (+1500), via FanDuel Sportsbook.

While it's impossible to ignore Koepka's run of dominance in majors over the past couple of years, there are still plenty of guys at the top who have either won or performed very well over the years at the British Open. Additionally, McIlroy will be playing in his home country of Northern Ireland.

As with any of golf's majors, it will be a tough test, so while you can expect the world's best to be at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday, you can never rule out the potential element of surprise.
